What is a Resume?

It is a most-important business document. It highlights your strengths and experience in the most effective manner - succinctly and directly - to show why you may be qualified for the position you want.

The Purpose of Resume Writing

The resume is an all-important business document - not just a piece of paper. It has a very distinct purpose. It can be your salvation or it can be quite the opposite.

The information on your resume must jump off the page at the reader to be effective.

...and you thought that the prospective employer would actually read your submission in its entirety!

In reality,the average time spent on each first perusal of a resume is about 10 to 15 seconds maximum!!! - so your document must be OUTSTANDING!

This whole writing process can be daunting for the novice.

However, on these pages, and with a few hints and tips, you can soon learn how to achieve success!

Note: Some people also refer to the resume as Curriculum Vitae or CV.

Note: The resume should always be accompanied by a Letter of Application or a Cover Letter.

Summary of Important Considerations

The resume must be professional:

  • Consistent
  • Correct
  • Concise
  • Attractive in appearance

Make the format work for you!

The resume must read itself to the reader. The document must be something that almost "reads itself to the reader." That goal can be achieved by an outstanding - and yet very simple - format. I hope you can learn through this resume writing site to produce that.

It brings "you" to life. The document must bring your strengths and skills to life - so that it will be clear you are the best candidate for the job - or at least you deserve to have the interview.

These points will be discussed in more detail throughout the pages of this website.

Once you get the interview, the game changes somewhat - and that's a different story. The resume is the "tool" that will get you to that next level.

Writing the perfect resume can land you the interview - and that is your goal.

  • When your resume clearly shows the potential employer that you are the right candidate for the job, you will land the interview.
  • Putting forward a professional appearance and impression is of prime importance.
  • Writing a professional resume is a huge part of that.

You will feel confident going into the interview if you have a solid basis on which to rely - that excellent resume.
